READING, Pa. (Sept. 13, 2003) - The second straight 2003 NHRA POWERade Drag Racing Series event, the Lucas Oil NHRA Nationals at Maple Grove Raceway this weekend, has been postponed because of rain.

The Lucas Oil NHRA Nationals, Round 18 of 23, will return to Maple Grove on Oct. 3-5, where the schedule will include two Nitro Top Fuel and Funny Car qualifying sessions on Saturday, Oct. 4, at 12 noon and 3:30 p.m. Final eliminations will take place on Sunday, Oct. 5.

Two weeks ago the U.S. Nationals at Indianapolis Raceway Park were rained out on Labor Day and were completed a week later.

Whit Bazemore, driver of the Matco Tools Iron Eagle Dodge Stratus, was No. 14 qualifier in the one completed qualifying session here on Friday and will hold that position going into the Oct. 4-5 event. Gary Scelzi, in the Oakley Time Bomb Dodge Stratus and Scotty Cannon, in the Oakley Funny Car, did not make the field this weekend and will attempt to qualify on Oct. 4.
